What Are You Reading?

 
I am always interested in what others are reading. Maybe it's because I don't want to miss out on a  good read or maybe it's because I am a librarian. For whatever the reason, I am curious. When I began to read Rachel's blog A Perfection Called Books I thought what a great idea,  A TBR Tag.

The TBR Tag was created by Dana from Dana Square and Rachel fromA Perfection Called Books! They are asking some questions about your TBR pile. It's fun! And it's a tag so once you do it, tag your friends :D
 
 
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I pin all of the books I want to read on pinterest. Here is a link to those books.Tula's Book Challenge Reads ...TBR Mind you, some of these books are for a book challenge I am involved in. I am always open to new authors or a genre that may not be something I would typically pick up.

Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?

I like to add books to my pinterest board that are typically in  hardcover. I love the feel of the book in my hand and the smell of  a book. I am a true librarian at heart. Although, I occassionally get a book on CD. I am currently enjoying If I Stay By Gayle Forman on audio.


How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

Whichever book I most want to read at the moment unless I have a bookclub read to get started on.

A Book That's Been On Your TBR List The Longest

The Lost Book Of Salem by Katherine Howe is a book I added last fall.  I thought what a good book to read around Halloween time and I never got to it. I will read it in the coming weeks, to be sure!


A Book You Recently Added To Your TBR
I recently added the book Little Big Lies by Liane Moriarty  I have enjoyed all of Liane Moriarty's books and I have a feeling this one will also be a big hit.


A Book In Your TBR Strictly Because Of Its Beautiful Cover

The Hurricane Sisters by Dorthea Benton Frank. I think this is a beautiful cover and immediately was drawn to it. My swap partner got this one for me this summer, from my wish list. I have not read it yet but I am hoping to make it my next read.


A Book On Your TBR That You Never Plan on Reading
 
I probably won't read Christmas in July by Debbie Mason. Don't get me wrong I love to read Christmas and or holiday books, they are typically an easy, fun read. But this is a cross between summer and Christmas.

An Unpublished Book On Your TBR That You’re Excited For            

Each year, I anxiously await the release of Debbie Macomber's holiday book.  This year her newest release  is Mr. Miracle being released in October 2014. Her books are so comforting and warm it wouldn't be the holidays without reading her latest holiday book.




                                                                                                       
A Book On Your TBR That Basically Everyone’s Read But You

The book that comes to mind is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I really don't know why I haven't read it yet. I did actually pick it up at the library, yesterday. I hope to start it this week.



A Book On Your TBR That Everyone Recommends To You

Everyone recommends that I read the Gillian Flynn books. I have read Gone Girl and loved it, creepy and smart. I was completely drawn in and it's a book that has stuck with me. I have been told by so many people that Dark Places and Sharp Objects are even better. I find that hard to believe but I do want to see for myself.











                              
A Book On Your TBR That You’re Dying To Read

Beth Harbison's Driving With The Top Down would have to be the book I am dying to read. I have read all of her book and have enjoyed them all. Her books make me laugh out loud. She is a writer with a unique voice and easy writing style. She is one of those authors that just clicks for me.





How many books are on your TBR shelf?

I roughly have about 40 books on my TBR pile at all times, I wouldn't have it any other way.

 I am supposed to tag my friends in this post. I want everyone to share in the comments on my blog or blog about it on your blog. Feel free to share with me. But it is open to everyone.

Happy Reading,
Mrs. Shamhart
